Ethos helps executive leaders reach more confident, empathetic, and creative resolutions to ethical dilemmas. It was developed collaboratively by platform leaders and their stakeholders in partnership with GlobalGiving.
There are two Ethos playbooks: the Ethos Lite Playbook for managing urgent crises, and the complete Ethos Playbook for working with stakeholders to make more confident decisions and comprehensive solutions. Both playbooks provide a common framework to help leaders communicate the why, what, and how of their decisions.
Dilemmas—those questions about who we partner with and how we address threats to our integrity—are a source of stress and risk to most executives. Ethos is a human-centered mindset and approach to help us all make more confident decisions with integrity.
Ethos was created and tested over two years by a collaborative team of platform leaders, nonprofit staff, and other social sector professionals led by GlobalGiving. We’ve made it free and easy to use so your team can benefit from our trials and errors.
